Improve your Fuel Economy and Tire Life with Nitrogen

March 30th, 2011 by

id you know when you purchase a New Patty Peck Honda the tires are filled with nitrogen? It’s part of our Exclusive Value Package with every New Honda Purchase. Nitrogen in tires is becoming a very popular replacement for air, and for good reason.

There are many advantages to using nitrogen instead of compressed air in tires. You’ll notice improved fuel economy, a smoother ride, and your tires will last longer.

Nitrogen is less likely to migrate through tire rubber than oxygen, which means that your tire pressures will remain more stable over the long term. Converting to nitrogen in tires can improve your fuel economy up to 10% and increase your tire life by 30% or more.

Humidity (water) is a bad thing to have inside a tire. Water causes more of a pressure change with temperature swings than dry air ones. It also promotes corrosion of the steel or aluminum rim. With nitrogen, your tire pressures will remain more constant, saving you fuel and tire-maintenance costs. There will be less moisture inside your tires, meaning less corrosion on your tires.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has seen reduced aging of tires filled with nitrogen. When you switch to nitrogen-filled tires, you’ll see an improvement in air retention. But remember, it is not a substitute for regular inflation checks. Maintaining proper inflation can help prevent tire overheating, promote optimum tread life, and reduce rubber aging and wheel corrosion.

Our nitrogen machine, called NitroFill, is the only nitrogen tire inflation product guaranteed to provide the benefits of high purity nitrogen inflation. Oxygen molecules in compressed air are smaller and leak out three to four times faster. On the contrary, NitroFill nitrogen maintains tire pressure longer than oxygen

You will feel satisfied knowing your new Patty Peck Honda tires will last longer and save fuel. Stop by our Service Department or call (800) 748-8676 to learn more.
